Re: Alternator Belt

Hello and welcome to the forum.

No need to go anywhere near the timing belt.

You may have a twin belt arrangement on your car if you have power steering,if you do then I would definitely recommend replacing both belts together.

Re: Alternator Belt

The timing belt is in behind the plastic covers on the end of the engine,you are probably looking at the power steering belt and alternator belt (seperate belts for each).
